Seattle Pastry Ride: Delite Bakery (Brisk) <40>
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
Fall is almost here, so that means it's time to ride for pastries! Today's route takes us to Delite Bakery in Beacon Hill.
Join us for a 40 mile, brisk-paced (17mph) loop through the middle part of Lake Washington and around Mercer Island. Let's meet in the lower Woodland Park parking lot, near the soccer fields at 0845 for a pre-ride brief, then rolling promptly at 0900. We'll head across the 520 bridge, through Bellevue, then around Mercer Island clockwise and back west across the I-90 bridge, with a stop for treats at Delite Bakery in Beacon Hill prior to our return through Capitol Hill.
Restrooms available at the start and stops at miles 13 and 30.
Pace: Please note, we will ride within the posted pace on the flats with an equivalent effort up hills. If you plan to ride faster or slower, please come prepared to ride on your own so that each pace group does not have long wait times. We'll limit speed to posted limits while on multi-use paths.
Regroups/Mechanicals: This will be a social ride with regroups at the top of bigger hills and at all critical turns along the way. We'll also enjoy some opportunities for photos at nice viewpoints. Please come prepared with the necessary equipment you may need to take care of flats or other mechanical problems. A cue sheet is available for you to print (at the link below) and is good to have in case you happen to get separated from the group.
Cancellation Policy: In the event of a weather cancellation, a notice will be posted in the comments on this page at least two hours before the ride and the ride leaders will not be at the ride start location.
